The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Publisher: Bethesda
From our The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
'It’s like watching Star Wars and genuinely thinking, ‘what about those poor Death Star construction workers?’ You’re missing the point: Skyrim is a huge and engaging world to explore and it treats you with great moments, from your first dragon encounter to finally being able to craft dwarven armour.'
We've updated our Skyrim benchmark to include the official high resolution texture pack, available as a free DLC
. We set the game to its 'Ultra' setting and record a sixty second manual play through just outside the town of Whiterun during a thunderstorm. We use a section where we are able to run forward in a straight line for a minute without being attacked so the benchmark remains consistent, and use the third person camera view.
